Hezekiah’s Tunnel

Hezekiah’s Tunnel also known as Siloam Tunnel is found in the National park of the City of David in Jerulalem. The tunnel is filled with water and is a great activity especially on a hot summers day. The tunnel dates back, according to some, as late as the 8th century BC. The role of the tunnel was to bring water to the cities population, incase they became under seige. Today the City of David is a popular tourist destination and a walk through the tunnel is fun for the whole family.

The walk can take up to 40 minutes if there are alot of people. The water is not high and gets to knee level occassionally but mostly is ankle deep. Once you start the walk you cannot turn around and go back, making this activity not appropriate for those who are claustrophobic. Once you get to the end of the tunnel, you can take a shuttle bus back to the enterance of City of David, or walk back on a dry indoor route.

The tunnel is free to Matmon card holders. Booking ahead is not required unless you want the option of a 3 hour guided tour. This can be booked through the City of David website
